I placed a pre-order w/ MPC a few weeks ago. They lost the order. If I keep with the order, it'll be months before I get my chickies!!! So, it's off to Del's I go. I'm getting a BO and an australorp on Wednesday. But I really, REALLY wanted a blue-crested Polish. Enter Dena (coffeelady3): she's moving forward with the MPC order and added a blue-crested Polish for me. And a silver-laced Polish. They'll arrive in May sometime. DBF doesn't know I'm getting 4 chicks... not just 2. Mwahahahahahaaaaa. Ze chickies vill be mine, all MIIIIINNNNNE!! DBF will freak out when he finds out about the chicks, but I. don't. care. I've been extremely patient: a 2.5 year bathroom remodel, no heat at our house for 2 weeks, starting a new business. Darnnit, I deserve this!
